I take it this is for an indoor grow?

Are you an experienced grower?

Yep, it does seem to be a good one for a beginner grower
Satori is an exceptionally easy to grow sativa. She has shown impressive hardiness against spider mites and other pests, and she possesses a good measure of mold resistance. Her slim appearance makes it possible to plant in narrow rows, or in SOG, to maximize her typical record yields even more. The firm side shoots provide highest quality cuttings. As with all our sativas she is heat resistant - an added bonus for small indoor environments and hot summer grows
Hope to see a grow journal from ya!

Have you got your grow equipment yet or are you still in the process of shopping?

That depends...
Before answering that question I've gotta ask..

Before thinking about how many plants you want to grow, you gotta think about how many you cangrow. What I mean by that is you gotta calculate light coverage vs. grow space and whatnot. And what method do you plant on growing? Do you plan to veg them for a short period and flower them small (like a SOG) or do you plan to have large plants several feet tall? 10 big plants take up way more room and need way more light than 10 tiny plants.You need to look at the grow space you have available and see what your possibilites are from there

What space do you have to work with? And what are you planning on getting for lighting? HPS? How many watts? How many lights?

A good soil mix popular amongst growers is the Fox Farm Ocean Forest

I think that's available only at Hydroponic stores or Nurseries

I've used ProMix for years with excellent results also. Available at Rona, Home Depot etc

So you've got roughly 6ftx6ftx6ft...

Is that an enclosed area like a closet or something? If so, have you thought about ventilation? If you pop a 600 watter in there, you need a way to get cool air in and hot air out..

Awesome....

For a 600 watt light the recommmended grow space is 12-20 square feet

You at 6x6 approximately gives you around 36 sq. feet ....you will be lacking light using such a large area 6x6 should be around 1400 watts. Of course you could use a bit less of that area to compensate


Have a look at this

http://www.weedguru.com/forum/viewtopic ... 88&t=28014

You have limited height..around 6 feet you say. The light hanging takes about 1 foot, plus you have to calculate about 1.5 feet between the light and plant. So that's 2.5 feet gone already...plus the height of the pot which should be about 1 ft...so that's 3.5 ft of your height available taken already, leaving you with 2.5ft of available grow height give or take a bit

You might want to consider doing a SCROG grow

http://www.weedguru.com/forum/viewtopic ... 88&t=27983

For optimal growth with a 600 watt light using the SCrog technique you would want to use an area about 3.5 feet x 3.5 feet.
